Update all items in a list using Nintex Workflow

Recently, I had a requirement to update all items in a List based on other list item’s change event. So decided to implement using Nintex workflow.

Designed the Nintex workflow as this to update all items in list.

run nintex workflow all items list

Here are the details actions in workflow designer:

Query the List to get all items:

nintex run workflow all items list

Apply For-Each to loop thru the list items:

nintex workflow all items

Update the list items:

nintex update all items in list

So simple! Isn’t it?
